Ulfat Bibi's Story
Before you proceed to read the details of Ulfat’s ailment, please know that your help will enable Ulfat Bibi to walk again. Your donation, however small it may be, will change Ulfat’s life for good. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Ulfat’s Knee Replacement as much as you can.
For the last seven years, sixty-six years old Ulfat Bibi has been suffering from Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes the cartilage in the knee joint to thin out. In consequence, the surfaces of the joint become roughened, thus creating friction. As a result, the movement becomes painful, and the joint becomes stiff. Due to this condition, Ulfat is not able to get up or walk. Moreover, the pain has become unbearable for her.
Now, to treat this condition, the orthopaedic surgeon has advised Ulfat to undergo a total knee replacement surgery for her left knee. It is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability.
Unfortunately, the cost of the surgery is beyond Ulfat’s affordability. Ulfat Bibi’s husband passed away many years ago. Thus, Ulfat Bibi is financially dependent on her son, who hardly earns PKR 25000 per month. With this income, he has to raise his own family as well. Therefore, he is in no position to bear the expense of his mother’s surgery. He told us:
“My mother is in so much pain. I do not have the heart to look at her. Whoever is reading this, I request you to please help her.”
We cannot even imagine the pain Ulfat Bibi is in. But, we can empathize with her for sure. She needs our help now more than ever. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Ulfat’s knee replacement as much as you can. Our help will get her back up on her feet in no time.
